How to Find a Driveway Specialist

Finding a driveway specialist

Your driveway is the first thing that visitors notice about your home: it's a key part of your 'kerb' appeal, as well as your property's value.

Whether you prefer tarmac, brick or even recycled glass for your driveway, a driveway specialist is the tradesman to call.

What do you need to know when finding a driveway specialist?

When hiring your local driveway specialist, it’s important to not choose based on recommendation, make sure they are a registered and accredited tradesman. Ask for documentation to certify their background and experience.

An accredited driveway specialist will belong to the Marshalls Register of Accredited Landscape Contractors and Driveway Installers. This is a nationwide network of professionals who are verified and monitored by the register to measure their levels of competence and performance.

In terms of insurance, you can protect yourself against fraud or poor workmanship if the tradesmen let you pay by credit card. Your local tradesman may say his work is guaranteed, but if they go bankrupt you may not be covered and therefore it’s essential you ask if they have insurance backing their guarantee that covers you in the event of them going out of business.

An experienced professional should be able to provide all of this information. If they cannot, or are hesitant to do so, it would be wise to continue your search.

What does a driveway specialist do?

Your local driveway specialist will be able to provide a number of services which will largely fall into the categories of block paving, natural stone paving, decorative flagging, tarmacing and gravelling driveways.

Block paving is the method of using bricks as the materials to form the base of and decorate the drive. Natural stone paving is when your local driveway specialist makes use of materials such as granite and limestone with a range of finishes, colours and sizes.

How much does a driveway specialist cost?

The cost of your hiring your local driveway specialist is dictated by the materials needed for purchase and level of service. The cost of installations are largely comprising of ground preparation and labour, so make sure you get the best quality you can afford in terms of materials.

Metin was not only hugely professional, brilliant at the job in hand but he also went the extra mile by popping out to B&Q (twice!) when we realised our TV bracket was not the correct one. He was fantastic. I have dealt with a lot of builders and handymen recently and Metin was the best of the best. Will definitely be using again.

Graham and his men have done a few jobs for me and they have always been excellent. They arrive on time and carry out the work quickly and without any fuss. Graham always has a solution to get round any problems he may encounter on site and they always clean up afterwards!
